Another quick post today with more Loomis studies, pretty much the same as yesterday. This one above is a partially muscled mannikin skeleton, just showing how the muscle is laid on. Continue reading
Hoo boy, I chose a couple difficult positions for my mannikin drawings last night. I only did two – I had so little time, so it generally seems like on those kinds of nights, focusing on these &/or gestures is a good idea. Anyways, it was a bit rough. Some obscured limbs, not really seeing the shapes of the figure properly, etc.
It’s been a little while since I’ve done any Loomis mannikins, so that’s what I did last night. This one on top was the first one, & kind of tricky with the legs, especially. Mostly because of a partially obscured leg – well, it’s obscured when there’s flesh & muscle on it, but the rest of the leg is partially visible when it’s basically just a skeleton, right? Anyway, it was a bit difficult, so I just sort of fudged it.
Busy day today, so I got my drawing in during my lunch break. Since I didn’t have a lot of time, I decided to practice on the mannikins. Kind of an off day today, but ah well. Don’t even ask me what’s going on with that one on the right’s feet, ’cause I really don’t know.
And here’s another: Continue reading
I’m still working on those mannikins (a little) & started doing some gesture drawings the past couple days. The mannikins above were done pretty quickly & are super sketchy – I had to darken it slightly in Photoshop so the lines would show up a little better.
Here are some gesture drawings: Continue reading
Ok, so when I said yesterday that that was the last of the mannikins, I only meant from that section of the book (although looking ahead a little, I may have a few more to do). I tried doing some of my own last night, with mixed results!
